wchesser (1540) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2015
Feb. 2013 bottle in April ’15. Gorgeous ruby red with low carbonation. Nose is pretty simple, typical funk, some nondeScript red fruits, perhaps unripe raspberry. Quite tart, too much on it’s own actually, but works with some fatty Scottish salmon to balance it out. Tart, funk, indistinct red fruit again, cranberry, light oak. Too damn sour to have without food.

Mortlach (1389) - Rome, ITALY - APR 5, 2015
375ml bottle shared @La Tana (Rome) with ippopotamo36. Pours a deep violet (amazing!) color with a thin foam. Aroma is fantastic, so powerful and persistent, vinous, red grapes, blackberry, wow! Flavour is very sour, aggressive but pleasant, fruity, vinous, black currants, complex like a good wine. Medium body, medium carbonation. This is a real world class lambic!

SlovakSniper (4045) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2015
Vintage 2013. Nez de colle à tapis, fruit, cassis. À la limite du recommandable. Liquide qui brûle mes papilles. En fait, une gorgée sur deux est tolérable. Assez bizarre comme sensation. Acétique à l’os. Citronnée x 1000. Très difficile à boire. Trop c’est trop. C’est une blague ou quoi ce truc? Où est la caméra? Merci à rodenbach99 pour le partage.

Une bouteille botted in march 2013. Une robe rougêatre sans mousse. Un nez de «solvent» ce n’est pas de moi, de sauvage, de geuze avec un peu de fruit. Une bouche de vinaigre de framboise, très intense. C’est vraiment trop !!!

Bottle shared at the Cotteridge Convention 2015. Thanks to Fin! Pours deep purple with a creamy pink crown. Funky nose, some raspberry and farts. Light sweet flavor, juicy and citric, quite funky, with notes of apple and musty berries. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Tart finish, drying, with some berry skins and light acidic bite. Also, salty. Very good.
